9 things you’ll be taking for granted on PS4 – the tech you’ll barely notice this time next year

OPM: As technology progresses things that used to amaze become commonplace. With that in mind we line up some of the PS4 tech that will change gaming while you barely notice it. (Call of Duty: Ghosts, inFamous: Second Son, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Planetside 2, PS4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt)

Huge online battles and complex physics are going to change gaming huh? Social connectivity too!!!

Dude complex physics systems is one of the reasons why battlefield is so much better than static old cod.

"Huge online battles and complex physics are going to change gaming huh? Social connectivity too!!! "

yes. they are.

It will change gaming more than integrated television.
n4rc  +   455d ago
The point was.. Everything listed is just some ambiguous term that applies to both current and next gen systems.

Nothing specific to Sony. As the article would have you believe.. But as others pointed out, I didn't notice the source so its not unexpected
Smoovekid  +   455d ago
That is not at all what you said.
n4rc  +   455d ago
OK.. Please explain to me what I said.. Considering its 3" above this..

I'll wait..

Even tho I know what's coming.. Judging by all the disagrees for simply stating a fact that isn't an attack on your precious ps4.. But you took it that way anyways, didn't you?

What sort of bugs me is how all these people keep saying everything is run "on engine" as if it's something to brag about. In reality, they are showing us a video scene that may be in a game. That doesn't impress me.

If you look at ANYTHING Square Soft/Square Enix has done in a Final Fantasy game since FF8 (and arguably FF7) they have never had a problem making ultra realistic, gorgeous video scenes.

What they need to show to impress people is what their game can do in GAMEPLAY. Show us in game graphics, an example of physics, lighting, enemy AI, anything your game does well that showcases what these new consoles are capable of! Don't go showing me a video scene, they've always looked good, but its the gameplay that matters.

Sorry if I'm ranting, it needed to be said.
TheGrimReaper  +   455d ago
I kind of agree with you but you are ranting about "in engine" footage and your example is FF???

You know the difference between "in engine" and pre-rendered CG videos, don't you?

From what it looks like, they are just showing us a video scene. We already have great looking video scenes in games, and the actual gameplay looks completely different.

While I understand the difference between pre-rendered CG videos and in engine footage, what I don't know is which games use pre-rendered vs in game. Actually, I don't particularly care. So what if they can make video scenes in engine at the same level as pre-rendered CG?

Yes, it is a great accomplishment, but if that doesn't reflect what the gameplay will look like, it doesn't really affect us as gamers.

I'm sorry, I missed the 2000 player simultaneous game eith air, land, and infantry physics, amazing graphics, and a persistant world (no clowd needed) that was coming to Xbox One.

You know what really grind my gears?

Webpages with multipage lists to get cheap impressions.
Stoppokingme  +   455d ago
The talking dog is right. Down with multipages!

Page 5 about MGSV-
"Having that level of detail in a huge open world is only possible on a machine as powerful as PS4"
yet Kojima said the E3 trailer was running on current gen systems
christrules0041  +   455d ago
He never said it was running on current gen consoles.

It was built on a PC using the current generation as a guideline. Here is a link to the article:

I can't wait :)
Cmk0121  +   455d ago
all listed above will be on both ps4 and xbox one, this again is one of those write ups that give a particular console more love and leave people in the dark on the other. bias headline
Gamingisfornerds  +   455d ago
Don't worry, I'm sure they'll upload the same article again tomorrow, but with a quick 'search: PS4 -> replace by: Xbone' edit.

Minimal work, double hits. Gotta love 'journalism' these days.

It's the official PlayStation magazine writing this article. What do you expect? They didn't put down the Xbox One but you gotta have realized by now how many times Microsoft has said this is only possible with the cloud. It is just part of marketing.

Gamingisfornerds  +   455d ago
Oh, didn't notice it was PS magazine. Then no, they probably won't make the same article for Xbone... :D
rustyspoon80  +   455d ago
It's just because its from the official playstation magazine. They cant really write about the xbox.
TheGrimReaper  +   455d ago
Maybe this article was meant for PS3 gamers who will buy a PS4.
It wasn't meant to downplay X1 but tried to show what next-gen consoles (in this case they use PS4 as an example; regarding their target audience the right thing to do) will do better than current gen consoles.

Its funny I haven't taken the graphics or experience for granted after playing TLOU.

There is potential for one game to last you the whole generation. Skyrim was massive and I still haven't finished it.
Games like Planetside 2 and Elder Scrolls online could potentially keep you entertained for years. And they way that other games constantly change will keep them fresh also.

Biggest change to next Gen that we will notice? Cod dog and reaction fish!
Nicholasgliss  +   455d ago
Did everybody just look at the first two and go straight to comment?
Nicholasgliss  +   455d ago
I was expecting at least one thing being what the OS is doing in the background like capturing gameplay. This article could have been written last gen as all of it could have been said in 2005.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   455d ago
A man thought for sure that the super fast menus would be listed. Think of how slow PS Store is now and how long it takes to switch in between apps or load a large world. That 8GB GDDR5 RAM will help make these previously laggy experiences instantaneous. A man is looking forward to having a much faster more efficient OS and of course faster online connectivity.
iceman06  +   455d ago
I agree, but this was supposed to be the tech that you wouldn't notice. It's safe to say that we would ALL notice the UI change. It's one of the things that I am most excited about (finally an integrated system). That and the companion PS app will make me a happy camper for the next gen. The games are a given (Sony doesn't disappoint with that).

Edit: Oops...damn Firefox glitched my reply to Jaqen_Hghar!!!
